Well the count will either be correct or it won’t (yea I know, dugh) but .. here’s the 60 minute GART SELL PATTERN that hit so IF this pattern works THEN JPM should start back down which will put pressure on all the banks. IF this PATTERN FAILS then expect the daily .618 and .786 above to get attacked and, potentially send JPM off to new highs.
But, for now, pay attention the SELL PATTERN present on JPM:
Supposedly … who knows what is true these days .. 1000’s of banks are underwater. OK … whatever.
Here’s when we look at the CHART and we ask should we BUY or SELL or DO NOTHING.
KRE sliced thru the first “potential support” and now we approach, what I think, is the KEY to the KRE. Here’s why:
58.76 – if you look at the purple measured moves you will see that EVERY major swing down has been 58.76%. I’ve used the “close” in 2008 as I’m not sure if that is a good print or not .. either way, that measured move nails EVERY LOW
1.618 projection lands … right at the 58.76 correction.
.707 (square root of 2 = 1.4142 and 1/1.4142 = .707) just a little above this level
Long term LOG trend line right at .. all the above
Note the VOLUME – is that a capitulation spike in selling volume?
RSI sitting at the crucial support level for the ENTIRE bullish move since 2009
Nobody in their right mind is looking to BUY the banks but, then again, I can guarantee you NOBODY was looking to buy in March 2009. Maybe there was someone? Perhaps … me?
DATE STAMPED 3 MR 2009. (March 3, 2009)
So … watch the THRUST coming into this level, maybe wait for a signal reversal candle (bullish).
What I can say is IF we blast thru this level (certainly “feels” like we should) then, yeah, a lot of banks are looking at some tough times and 28 and then 21 are the next targets.
Here is the Banking Index PATTERN that we needed to watch and monitor. Folks, banks are everything. PERIOD. They lead us UP and they lead us DOWN. Something isn’t right at the circle K.
All things being equal, the wave that started today needs to finish 5 waves so I would step aside and let the banks pave the way … the BIG support is 83-86. Why? The red arrow is the largest price correction in the banking index since 2009. What happens at that level will be very key.
Next levels are the measured move down around 56-60 and the BIG ONE at 45-46.
we had a VERY nice pattern coming in around the 370’s and it’s basically failed.
as you can see the high was a 1.27*ab=cd but w/ this strength thru the lower pattern that failed, would WAIT for a daily close below 372 before putting any type of short out there …
w/ the strength in the financials and the Banking Index (shown below) I would be hard pressed to put a short on w/ regard to the banks until the target above is hit … we hit that target, could be game on.
